Donation made to Georgia's House

Georgia's House, a homeless shelter, received a $300 donation recently.

The shelter, located off Auto Center Way in Bremerton helps homeless and displaced women and children, as well as women who have suffered from domestic violence.

Volunteers staff the shelter 24/7. The building has five bedrooms, four of which are for individual families and one is a large dorm for single women.

The women who stay there are referred to Georgia's House by non-profit agencies in Kitsap County.

The donation was presented by the Silverdale Seabeck Republican Women (SSRW) as part of their Community Outreach program.

SSRW plans to continue supporting Georgia's House through future donations of necessary items, volunteer time and more financial aid.

Georgia's House is operated by The Weaver Foundation, founded in memory of a philanthropist named Georgia Mattson.

In her memory, the foundation and shelter's main mission is to provide shelter and everyday support to women trying to overcome their homeless circumstances.
